Chaos War Preview

Chaos War – Kree-Empowered Avenger Ms. Marvel!

Greetings HeroClix fans!

For today’s preview from the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set, we visit the Avengers to check in with a former Air Force major who has spent time amongst the Starjammers, had powers granted by the Kree, and was Tony Starks handpicked leader of the Avengers, Ms. Marvel!

Ms. Marvel begins play leading the Avengers into battle with Leadership to potentially add an action to your action pool.  The always useful combination of Charge and Super Strength allows Ms. Marvel to take the action to your opponent.  Invulnerability will protect Ms. Marvel from the inevitable counter attack for her first couple of clicks.   Next up, Charge is replaced by Flurry for a couple of clicks as Ms. Marvel pummels her foes.  Toughness will make sure Ms. Marvel still has damage reduction capability.

Mid-dial, Ms. Marvel loses powers in her movement slot, but she gains a special power of in her attack slot called Radiant Burst, allowing Ms. Marvel to use Energy Explosion as if she had a range of 7 and two targets.  Toughness gives way for a return click of Invulnerability.  At the end of her dial, Ms. Marvel sees the return of Charge for a couple of clicks.  Steal Energy will allow Ms. Marvel to heal a click with every successful close combat attack for the rest of her dial, and Toughness will again protect her from harm.

At 110 points, Ms. Marvel has the Avengers team ability.  Ms. Marvel possesses the Avengers, Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. keywords to give her plenty of theme team building options, but her consistent attack and damage values will make her a benefit to whatever force you include her on.

Thanks for reading and be sure to check back next week when we continue to explore the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set.
